Abstract: The mechanisms of localization of Jahn-Teller deformations and vibronic wave functions in isotope-substituted dynamical Jahn-Teller systems are elucidated. It is found that the localization in the trough is of potential type in the case of strong vibronic coupling, while it becomes of kinetic type in the case of intermediate and weak coupling. It is shown that the vibronic levels in the linear E⊗e problem remain double degenerate upon arbitrary isotope substitution on the reasons similar to time reversal symmetry in which the role of spin is played by orbital pseudospin.
